Five in a row - now Ulloa relishes run-in
Leo Ulloa has laughed off the idea of being rested – and declared himself fit and ready for a play-off push.
The in-form striker aims to score for the sixth game in succession as Albion take on relegation-threatened Millwall at the Den.
He made it five in a row at Hull on Monday in a game many people expected him to sit out.
Ulloa admits he has suffered tired calf muscles after recent matches and is having treatment on an ankle problem.
But he insisted he always fancied playing at Hull – rather than taking the chance of a rest – and is relishing the run-in.
He told The Argus: “I want to keep converting chances because that is the best way I can help the team.
“I’m happy, I feel better. I don’t have any problems and I hope to keep going in the same way.
“We didn't know who was going to play at Hull but I was ready.
“In fact I really wanted to play at Hull because matches like this are good to play in.
“True, I was a bit tired but that's in your head.
“I convinced myself I was feeling good in these two days and gave it my best “The calf muscles felt a bit tired but that's all it was, just fatigued.
“I had a problem with my ankle but I've forgotten about it, I feel good.
“I've been having treatment and hopefully it will be fine.”
